Weekly Recap: May 14th-20th, 2018

Oh man! This week was HARD! I feel like I spent the whole week being hot, sore, and tired haha. Still though, I feel like I got a lot done! Did some strength work, cross trained, and got a lot of work done in the garden. And did a decent amount of running too haha! Didn’t do quite as much as I wanted to, but it was still more than last week, so at least I’m slowly creeping my mileage up and am headed in the right direction!


  • 4 miles
  • 45 minutes of strength work
  • 1 hour working in the garden

I got shit done on Monday!! My run went well, killed my strength workout, and got a bunch done in the garden! It was hot and gross out though haha, so I was pretty stoked that I got so much outside stuff done. 🙂



  • stationary bike

I ended up sleeping in hardcore on Tuesday. I had a rough night and had trouble falling asleep until crazy late the night before. So since I got up late I didn’t run on Tuesday. I was sore, tired, and didn’t want to run after the sun had been up for a while and it was hot and gross out. So I ended up spending some time on the stationary bike instead.



  • 4 miles

It was really muggy and gross out on Wednesday. That was no fun… Still did 4 miles though!



  • 3.33 miles
  • 30 minutes of weeding in the garden.
  • 15 minutes of Pilates

Holy cow I was really tired on Thursday! My goal was 5 miles, but honestly being tired wasn’t why I didn’t hit my goal, the problem was my stomach. Sometimes it gets really upset or just feels gross in hot weather. And it sure didn’t feel great on Thursday. But I still got a little bit accomplished so I’m happy about that! After my run I spent some time in the garden. Mostly weeding. Then I did a little bit of Pilates later in the afternoon.



  • rest day

Luke and I spent a ridiculous amount of time at Sprint getting a new phone plan and upgrading our phones from our old iphone 6’s to iphone 8’s. Even though that took forever it was totally worth it! We had the 6’s for almost 4 years and the batteries in both of them were starting to go bad. So it’s nice having a phone that doesn’t die so fast haha.  Also made a fresh batch of bone broth. Yummy!! 🙂


  • 8 miles
  • 2 miles

Things got a little bit interesting on Saturday! I had planned on doing 10 miles for my long run this week, and I mean, I did it, collectively haha.

So on Saturday morning it when I set out to do my run it was kinda thunderstorming. It wasn’t too bad, but I did see a few flashes of lightning right above my head. That was probably a little bit dangerous. 😉 It had though, once I got to about mile 5, but once I had made it to mile 7 another storm front was moving in. I could see it/feel it coming in and it didn’t look to good. Plus the wind was really starting to pick up and was knocking over a bunch of tree branches, so I figured I needed to head back home and wait the storm out.


So that’s what I ended up doing. I showered, at lunch, took a nap, and then later in the afternoon when it was super hot and humid out I got those last two miles done. So at least I got 10 miles in. 🙂



  • rest day

On Saturday night Luke, my brother-in-law, his girlfriend, and me went out. First we went to a pool hall and while the boys played, we just sat and talked. And then once they were done there we went to a bowling ally. I drank a little more than I usually would haha. I didn’t do anything crazy or anything, but I did wake up not feeling so great. 😉 It’s all good though. We had fun. 🙂

Total Weekly Mileage: 21.44

I was aiming for more like 25 miles, but still, not bad! I’m happy with what I got done this week. 🙂

Alrighty then, I hope everyone had a great week!

Happy Sunday!
